Social distancing scares are real, and as weeks of life in isolation tick by, we're discovering novel ways to stay connected in this unforeseen, uncharted reality. In-person dating is so 2019, the era of the pandemic has given way to a plethora of digital platforms that allow us to sustain as well as develop romantic relationships virtually!
And, in the pursuit of finding a potential love interest—with remote romance fast becoming the norm—singletons have successfully jumped on the online dating bandwagon. While we are all aware that the virtual medium of communication solely allows you to be visible waist-up, there's no denying that putting together a stylish outfit paves the way for a confident, sexy you.
Celebrity stylists Shounak Amonkar and Pranay Jaitly share some uber-fashionable date outfit ideas to make a lasting first impression and leave him wanting more.
Since most of your lower body won't be visible on screen, focus on the top half by opting for striking puffed sleeves. Pick an outfit that fits your body like a glove, has a statement neckline, and enhances your torso as well. Throw on a pair of denim jeans, slip into comfortable block heels, and bring the ensemble together with understated jewellery.
Avoid Bold Prints, Pick Solid Colours
We know you're dying to wear the printed outfit that has been lying in your wardrobe all summer, however, do take a moment to consider what the camera will capture well. Bear in mind the lighting in the space and accordingly opt for minimal prints and solids that enhance your skin tone and come through the screen.
A timeless, sexy look, there's nothing quite like slipping into a satin midi dress perfectly paired with strappy heels. Dress it up with statement jewellery—think chunky bracelets and dainty pieces—and clip back your hair or pull it back in a headscarf to accentuate your neckline.
The one-shoulder silhouette screams drama and can make for an interesting conversation starter. Pair your one-shoulder top with breezy and comfortable linen pants of your choice—they lack the stiff structure of regular pants but are a versatile garment that works well with fancy as well as casual clothing.
An Old School Classic
You can never really go wrong with a crisp white tee and a pair of well-fitted jeans. If you're struggling to narrow it down to a few stand-out pieces for your date, throw on your favourite white shirt and accessorise it with a stack of neckpieces and layered rings.
